    Lastly and just completed last night, my DIY lighting timer. Its a x-10 home automation system that works great for an aquarium set up. You can get them at Frys or online at x10.com

    I need to get around to making one of those ATOs for my nano (lots of things for it actually! :D) How come you put the airpump in that case? Looks? Sound?

    Both actually. Needed something to mount the relay in so figured I would put in all in one box.

    Thanks.
    I realized I have not updated this thread in some time. Here's some pic's I took a few weeks ago. It looks a bit different now but I need to take some current shots.
